How can we improve Azure Virtual Machines?

Improve Portal Message for Availability Set allocation errors

If there is an allocation error when restarting a deallocated VM, the following error message is logged:
“Failed to start virtual machine 'xyc'. Error: Allocation failed. Please try reducing the VM size or number of VMs, retry later, or try deploying to a different Availability Set or different Azure location.”

If there is an allocation issue when creating a new machine the following message is displayed:
“New-AzureRmVM : Unable to create the VM because the requested size Standard_F4 is not available in the cluster where the availability set is currently allocated. The available sizes are: Standard_DS1_v2,Standard_DS2_v2 …”

Would be nice to have the later message for all allocation errors.

    For us the same kind of error but there is no response for the request in Azure, a critical error without any response in Azure!!! Error: Allocation failed. Please try reducing the VM size or number of VMs. we try change the size but gives the same error message.
